• The objective of this course is to equip students with analytical frameworks and tools by which they will be able to successfully evaluate, launch, finance and create new high-growth companies. Special attention will be given to the creation of companies with a strong high-tech focus. Students who successfully complete the course will have hands-on experience in developing business plans and selling and marketing their ideas to external audiences.

  • The aim of the course is to provide students with a broad based understanding of the principles and techniques of Corporate Finance and applying them to the main decisions faced by the financial manager.Much of the underlying theme of this course is grounded in real world applications where we would bring to our class discussions, corporate decision-making considerations that financial managers make. The concepts are immediately applicable to all firms, both large and small, privately run or publicly traded and involved in any industry – whether manufacturing, merchandising or services.

  • Sustainability, defined broadly to include social equity, economic development, and environmental restoration, offers new opportunities (but also challenges) for business. The management aspects are multi-faceted, and this course seeks to provide students with an overview and understanding of these issues. The course will then proceed to introduce and provide an overview of the concept of “social entrepreneurship.”
